I am cleaning out my Christmas decorations. I have offered the things I don’t want to my children. They don’t want some of them either. So off to Goodwill they will go!
These things were becoming a burden, and I dreaded getting them out every year. For the past five seasons I decided to “pick and choose” and only used certain things each holiday. But it was time to purge.
There are certain heirlooms I can’t part with, of course. And now I will look forward to decorating with them each year! Plus I hope to go with a more natural look, with real greenery where possible.
I do wish I had some of these vintage ornaments. I saw this picture not long ago of the hand-blown glass globes like my mother had. I wouldn’t part with them for sure. How beautiful they are!
